For the life of me I can't see the real value of these. I'm crunching numbers in BattleMentat and, for instance, I'm looking at sending 6400 Thans on an attack. Mentat suggests I'll lose 11 of them. So I thought "what if I send, say, 500 Tritons? Well, IF every 5 of those 100 Trits yielded a cumulative 100% chance of recouping just one of those Thans (and I know they don't-- I'm speaking best-case hypothetical) then the optimistic non-loss of 5 Thans would be outweighed by the projected loss of ALL 500 Tritons. I mean they're doomed, period. They're tissue paper airplanes flying into blowtorches alongside cannonballs.

So what's the point of blowing 27,500,000 resources (plus their fuel) on the tiny chance of maybe saving, 13,250,000 to 29,150,000 resources? It just seems like a con to get fools to blow their assets.
